Cadence Fitness and Health Center in Geneva will remain closed for the rest of the day after a floor refinishing project released stronger than anticipated odors.

The center closed at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

"Geneva firefighters found that the fumes were strong, but not harmful," Cadence spokesman Chris King said Wednesday afternoon. "It was a stronger odor than we had anticipated."

King said the floor refinishing project will be done today, and that the center will reopen Thursday at its normal time of 5 a.m.
